The hunt for a class of 2023 quarterback is over as the Buckeyes have found their guy in Memphis (Tenn.) signal caller Brock Glenn. Ohio State ended up beating out finalists Florida State, TCU, Auburn and LSU for his pledge.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound four star from Lausanne College School held close to three dozen offers and seemed to be destined to stay in the south but the Buckeyes kept working hard on the talented quarterback prospect and ultimately won out over everyone else.
Ohio State had been in an odd position of having a class of 2024 quarterback commit in Dylan Raiola but not one in 2023. With Raiola being the top prospect in the class of 2024, the thought was that it might scare away any prospective 2023 quarterbacks knowing what was waiting in the wings, but that was not the case for Glenn.
“They are great coaches and produce and develop quarterbacks every year,” Glenn said during his commitment livestream. “That played a huge part in my decision. Just knowing that I am going to be developed by them.”
In 2021, Glenn threw for 23 touchdowns and 1576 yards in 10 games played for his high school. Glenn, who won’t be looked really as a dual-threat style quarterback also had 31 carries for three more touchdowns on the ground.
Glenn took part in the Elite 11 finals this past June and performed well against many of the nation’s other top quarterbacks in the class of 2023. He reportedly got off to a bit of a slow start but really started to shine as the event went on and had a strong final day.
Ohio State will be in a position after the 2022 season with potentially three quarterbacks on the roster. While CJ Stroud will still have more eligibility, nobody is expecting to see him on the roster in 2023, which will leave Kyle McCord, Devin Brown and presumably Brock Glenn.
Head coach Ryan Day has maintained that he wants to have four scholarship quarterbacks in the room which means the Buckeyes may look to the portal to add one more for the ’23 season but that decision is a way away and the 2022 team will only have three scholarship quarterbacks with Stroud, McCord and Brown.
Ten of Ohio State’s last 11 quarterback commits/signees have been four-stars or higher in the rankings. You have to go back to the class of 2015 for the last time Ohio State signed a quarterback who was ranked lower, a little-known quarterback out of Athens (Ohio) with Joe Burrow.
We all know how that one went.
